London’s Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has launched a new virtual meeting rooms package, enabling clients to join a virtual meeting wherever they are in the world using a range of video-conference technology such as Skype or web browser.
The venue’s Meetings and Events department has created a new technical and AV department to service nine cloud-based virtual meeting rooms within the venue.
The technology will also include collaborative working facilities, enabling delegates to share desktop displays for the purpose of giving virtual presentations, workshops and online training.
The RCP’s technical and AV manager, Ben Pain says: “This is a fantastic service for clients who are finding it increasingly difficult to have all their prospective delegates in one room at the same time.”
RCP sales and marketing manager Natacha Allen adds: “With many companies now having offices, employees and other stakeholders in different countries across the globe, we wanted to ensure we offer our clients a one-stop-shop type of service, ensuring that we have the right technology and a tech support team on-site to support their communications needs for any event.”
RCP’s venue has 20 separate event spaces and sits within a Grade 1 listed modernist building, and boasts a capacity of 400. Its unique medicinal garden, contains over 2,000 medicinal plants from around the world.
Revenue generated by the RCP Meeting and Events department helps to fund many activities the College is involved in, in particular, improving the quality of patient care.
